A fantastic day, with over a hundred folk from Spelthorne, in the Thames Club. A packed session, yet these folk were really up for a challenge.
There were lots of events taking place around the area, covering many subjects and issues.
SPELTHORNE SCHOOLS TOGETHER
Enhancing Achievement for our Children and Young People
Spelthorne Schools Together is a confederation of 30 schools in the Borough of Spelthorne. The Confederation brings together multi-agencies with the aim of enhancing the achievement of the children and young people in Spelthorne. They are cross phase and include the foundation stage, key stages 1 to 4 and sixth form. They include mainstream and special schools as well as a Short Stay School.
Their projects aim to raise achievement and aspirations at all key stages, involve learning opportunities for all, promote social inclusion, develop the role of schools in the community and aid collaboration, co-operation and communication between schools and multi-agencies.
The Confederation supports schools in Spelthorne to deliver cohesive Extended Services throughout the borough.
Extended Services have been a key way of delivering the Labour Government’s five Every Child Matters outcomes which are:
- Be healthy
- Stay safe
- Enjoy and achieve
- Make a positive contribution
- Achieve economic well-being
There are currently 23 Confederations in Surrey; Surrey County Council is looking at amalgamating these into 11 Borough-wide Confederations. As information on spending emerges from the Department for Education Confederations may take a new direction. In the meantime, Spelthorne Schools Together continue to deliver projects which enhance Extended Services.
A big THANK YOU to Gail Murphy for coordinating such a huge gathering of schools at today’s event – very impressive.
